“magic”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

the most beautiful b& b i have ever been in a superb location.
Warm reception car parking for free by Alessandro two minutes walking from the seaside.
exellent breakfast meat cheese home made focaccia
Sestri Levante is magic we have been only several days but for sure we are going to revisit.
The best icecream -100% natural-this is the name.
In a word top class.

This was our second time in BB Piazza Italia. We travel a lot, but coming back here was not even a question! Sestri Levante itself has some true magic in the air - people, weather, sea, FOOD(!!!), and the feeling you get being there is not so easy to describe - it should be on those "must do in your life" lists!!! From Sestri you can easy access lots of other gorgeous places - Genoa, Cinque Terre, Portofino - by train, but as for us - just enjoy Sestri every minute:)
And the place to stay - definitely BB Piazza Italia - perfectly clean, amazingly decorated, very comfortable, spacious, wonderful location (beach around the corner) - and most important - very welcoming! Alessandro is a perfect host - taking care of his guests, providing all the help and info needed, it is really hard to adapt to a post-holiday life after such a heaven!
Looking forward to be back soon!!!

This is one of the most beautiful B&B I have ever been to and I must say that I am totally charmed! First and foremost, I was very warmly received by Alessandro and his mother. Alessandro has a very good taste in interior design as well as a very good cook. He pays attention to very little détails to make my stay a very pleasant one. Fresh flowers and scent filled the room. A complimentary bottle of local wine for enjoyment was also provided.

Delicious and a big breakfast spread is prepared every morning with a variety of beverages available, and Alessandro will spend time chatting with you, like a good friend!

This B&B is definitely way better than 5 stars hotels, and the good news is that it is at a much affordable rate.

Why look elsewhere when you can live like a royalty here?

I had read all the glowing reviews but was still surprised at how lovely this B&B is. I think this may be the best accommodation I've ever stayed in, including some pricey ones. The furnishings /style/design/quality were beautiful-there was care and flair in every element. Alessandro was also a very helpful and kind but unobtrusive host. Location is also great and sestri levante is a great base for the area. You won't regret staying here!

Like many of the reviews you would read, this B&B run by Alessandro is nothing short of being beautifully furnished. He definitely has exquisite taste and has done is great job is providing sufficient amenities in his B&B. I never usually trust the pictures on the website, but I swear that the place looks exactly like the pictures on the website - no touch up!

Location: Slightly less than 200m walk from the train station. Extremely convenient if Sestri Levante is your base to sightsee all the other towns along the coast. It is near the main road, but the area is safe and quiet. It is less than 100m from the seaside boardwalk, so you can easily take a walk / run and have a great view. It is also not a far walk from the main town centre (about 5 mins) and you will be able to hit all the restaurants/cafes/shops.

Security: The B&B is housed in the basement of a building but no worries as there is direct access to the B&B and there are secured gates and grills around. Generally the area is safe despite being closely located to the train station.

Rooms: The room we had was tastefully done and smells nice. It is a nice size and we were able to manouvere around despite having 2 large suitcases in the room. There are windows to the room and you can hang dry some clothes when there is sun.

Amenities: Bathrobes, bedroom slippers, hairdryer, soap... were provided.

Food: Delish! Ale's mama bakes some pretty mean pastry and I normally help myself to 2 pieces. YUM! The kitchen is very well equipped with a fabulous coffee machine and you have more than 10 different types of teas to choose from. There is a great selection of cereals, fruits, yoghurt, etc and you can help yourself to anything in the well stocked refrigerator (including milk, juice, wine, etc).

Alessandro is a wonderful host. He speaks rather good English and was able to provide tips to places to visit (even when it rains). His Mama speaks only Italian but a very lovely lady.

We'll be back...

Stayed at Piazza Italia for 2 nights to see Cinque Terre, found the B&B easily using the map provided on the website (if you type the address into google it sends you somewhere else so definitely use the one provided by Alessandro!)

We were greeted and showed around the B&B, the breakfast is more than generous and Alessandro is a perfect host, giving us all the information we asked for, insisted on carrying our luggage and made us feel very welcome! Didn't spend a lot of time in Sestri Levante but we did go for dinner on the first night to a restaurant recommended by Alessandro and the food was fabulous! It's a fairly sleepy little place but in a perfect spot for visiting Cinque Terre, only 30 mins away by train and the train station is within walking distance as is the beach and nearby shops!

Would definitely go back, only wish we'd had longer to stay! The rooms were spotlessly clean and the coffee is excellent!! Alessandro has definitely earnt his high rating on TripAdvisor!
